Open Letter To Tim Walz

To:  Represenative Tim Walz
From:  Mitch Berg, Ornery Peasant
Re:  Sell Sell Sell

Rep. Walz,

You’re running in a primary this fall against a dog’s breakfast of people who, notwithstanding your attempt to re-paint yourself as a “progressive”, are far, far to your left.

To your credit, you’ve taken that “re-painting” pretty seriously:

Rep. Walz, burning whatever cred he may have had with gun owners by french-kissing “Moms Want Action” in 2016.

But your fellow DFLers prefer their “Democratic Socialism” neat.  No ice.

And apparently, with a little communist chaser.

For years, I’ve heard my Democrat friends chanting “Ronald Reagan wouldn’t get endorsed by today’s GOP” – with the premise being Reagan was “too centrist” for today’s GOP . It’s a perfectly plausible claim, if you have no idea about the history of the GOP; go and google “A Time For Choosing”, the full hour-long speech, if you need proof; it’d fit in at any Tea Party meeting in the past decade. If anything, Reagan would still scare the DC establishment; George Will was deeply unhappy with Reagan’s performance, and we know what George has been up to lately.

So no – Reagan would *not* have trouble in today’s GOP, or at least the part of the party that swept the elections in 2010 and 2014.

But Paul Wellstone and Hubert Humphrey would get laughed out of today’s Democratic Party. Of that, there can be no doubt.

That is all.

  1. You know how it is all the rage to apologize for past wrongs – even though you had nothing to do with them?

    On that score, as a resident of the Minnesota 1st Congressional District, I apologize from the bottom of my heart for our having elected Tim Walz to Congress. We knew it was wrong – but we did it anyway.

    We felt privileged, we felt power, we felt Tim was right – but we were so wrong. We know that now.

    Can you find it in your heart to forgive us?

    Speaking personally, I never voted for the bum. I always voted against him – but does that make me any less culpable? I fear not.

  2. Bill Clinton couldn’t get the Dem nomination today. No skirt chasers allowed in today’s Democrat party. No red-blooded men at all, really.
